On Friday, October 5, 2018 at approximately 9:55 a.m., Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash at the intersection of Conway Road and Purple Sage Road near Notus in Canyon County.

Marcos Serna Castillo, 61, of Pasco, WA, was southbound on Conway Road in a 1999 Freightliner semi pulling a single trailer. Colton Doramus, 19, of Caldwell, was westbound on Purple Sage Road in a 2007 Subaru Legacy. There was a juvenile passenger in his vehicle.
